The San Diego County Department of Prisons and Probation appears to have issued a public service notice stating that family calls for change will be accepted at San Diego Prison. While we understand that this is part of their public relations efforts to prevent prisoner violence, I wonder how any positive improvements to the people in prison in San Diego County can be made as a result of family calls for change? The answer seems to be that it could. Let’s look at some of the specific circumstances.
Recently, in January, three families had some heated words about the guards in the prison they called anti-social and careless. The families requested that the warden be removed because they did not provide adequate training for the inmates. The warden ignored their request and the families were subsequently forced to file a lawsuit against the state of California in order to obtain their rights.
Now, the state of California has issued a statement saying it would review and consider the complaints filed by the families. The families, however, called on the state to conduct its own investigation into alleged brutality and inadequate garda training. To date, no evidence has been presented to the families that would justify the removal of the warden. Therefore, it appears from this review that the complaints of families are unfounded.
Other complaints were made about family calls for change in San Diego prisons. These include the use of white people and charges for gang profiling. Members of the prison team strongly supported these calls for change in San Diego prisons. According to one former gang member, these calls for change in San Diego prisons are proof that they [prison gangs] are more powerful than ever. “
What this means is that members of their own prison group are ignoring the families who have called for an investigation into the alleged brutality of the guards. This is nothing new. The families call for the shooting of fourteen-year-old Latisha Johnson last February, which resulted in her running out of a pepper spray device during a peaceful meeting of friends. Despite only four witnesses to the shooting, no one present came to express anger or support for the deceased.
Another example of how prison camp police are unlikely to take a serious complaint is the case of twenty-one-year-old resident Rashad Owens. A prisoner sprayed pepper on Owens while in his cell block, New Year’s Day. According to the prisoners, Owens did nothing to provoke the attack, but still sprayed it with pepper. Prison guards did not file any official report on the incident, despite the counsel of the prison camp reporting an official report.
Another case we have documented is the killing of a seventy-two-year-old woman by three men in a San Diego prison. None of the inmates in the prison have ever been charged with her murder, despite assaulting another woman earlier the previous month. None of the three involved in the killing were warned in advance of the pending arrest. Love for the victims was only known after the truth. No investigation was conducted, despite the sheriff promising to send one.
Such changes to the system are made not only for the benefit of the families of those killed in police custody, but for the safety of the public. Those calling for investigations into the excessive use of force by police are concerned not only about the physical safety of officers and other prisoners, but also about increasing accountability to those sworn to protect the public. A system that allows only one member of prison staff to engage in a criminal assault is unacceptable. It also makes it more difficult to ensure that the officer followed the necessary protocols during an arrest. We have documented many other such examples in our reports, and call on all California counties to conduct comprehensive investigations of their prison homes.
